    From Gen MacArthur's Farewell speech: 12 May 62
    "Yours is the profession of arms, the will to win, the sure knowledge that in war there is no substitute for victory, that if you lose, the Nation will be destroyed, that the very obsession of your public service must be Duty, Honor, Country."

    I looked and that speech is almost 100 paragraphs long. Elvis Presley said he had it memorized before he graduated from High School.

    Looks to be a little more than four times as long as the longest Shakespeare monologue. Quite a mouthful, to be sure.
